"A lovely wine, displaying overall style and elegance, as well as a core of intriguing spice flavors that are wrapped in layers of cherry compote, damson plum preserves, dark chocolate shavings and spicy tobacco notes. There's fine integration here, with an overall vibrancy. The long, spicy finish shows just a hint of tannins. Drink now through 2026. 200 cases imported. -AN" (08/11)

"This fantastic Riserva Amarone opens with savory aromas of dark spice and black pepper followed by red fruit, cherry, dried apple, plum and raisin. There's a sweet note on the close followed by firm, polished tannins. -M.L." (12/11)
"The healthiest, ripest bunches of picked grapes undergo a unique drying process (Appassimento) that take place, on cases in a well naturally ventilated loft. The grapes lose at least the 35% of their original weight thereby concentrating sugar, aromatic compounds and noble tannins. In January grapes are gently crushed and the fermentation starts at low temperature(13-17 C). then, transfer to oak barrels of 700,1500 and 3500 litres of various origins and composition and age, mostly from Allier forest. The wine remains one year in bottles before release." -Winery
"Hugh Johnson writes about Recioto di Musella in the 1969 edition of 'The World Atlas of Wine'. With a great history behind us, we are continuing this wonderful work in a rural court of the sixteenth century, surrounded by green meadows crossed by the river Fibbio, which originally hosted the stables of the aristocratic Villa."
"Accomplished in the greatest respect of tradition, the building has been transformed into the precious setting for our botti and the cellar, equipped with all the latest technologies. The large hayloft above the ancient stables has been reserved for the drying of the grapes used to produce our Amarone. This process takes place thanks to a carefully calculated natural ventilation, which guarantees the healthy conservation of the grapes." -Winery
